This flavorful biopic of the great Gypsy jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt is set during the German Occupation of France, when the Roma people were being exterminated by the Nazis. Protected by highly placed German admirers, Django (Kateb) continues to perform at Paris clubs, but the plight of his people and the Nazis' plans to use him as a propaganda tool cause him to flee to a French border town, where he awaits the chance for a risky crossing into Switzerland. In French, Roma, German, and English with English subtitles. DCP digital.
